Thread Details

Last Edited by jinxeddeep December 2, 2012 at 08:14 PM
Figured I'd start a separate thread for the panny plasma's since the HDTV thread seems to be moving more towards a budget HDTV buying guide side and I got tired of reading through a lot of information about westinghouse, proscan and other budget HDTV brands.

I myself am most interested in the GT50 or ST50 models...hoping that the 55 inch GT will go under 1100 or that the 60 inch ST will go below 1000...

Note that Panasonic charges tax to most locales but shipping is free.
EastCoastTvs.com only charges tax to NJ residents.

Do your research on all sellers before placing an order.

If you are a Costco member see post 216 in regards to warranty options and differences from square trade.

Talk about getting the info I need, thank you very much for taking your time to give me all the information that I was looking for. I will be shadowing your next move for sure!

In regards to audio, I lucked out and the previous owner had the speakers put into the ceiling, three in the front two in the back. I bought a Onkyo receiver and a nice size sub. I still can't get everything to sound the way it should be, but I am hoping the tv will help me take some time out to figure it out.
yw...

if you're not getting the right sound, i doubt its your tv that's causing it since the audio from the device that's sending out the signal is routed directly to the receiver and does not reach the tv at all..it probably has to do with the equalizer or the audio modes of the receiver. You've probly already tried this out but in the event you haven't I'd suggest playing around with it. A simple solution usually is to put it in Auto-Surround or if your receiver has Pro Logic II support then switching to that mode.

Just out of curiosity, where are folks expecting to have these higher end sets go on sale? Best Buy, Amazon and ??? Does the Panasonic EPP program even have BF sales (I'm guessing not)? I guess it just seems like a slightly more niche market.
the panasonic store is not going to have BF special..the prices are only shown here for reference..we expect one of Amazon, Fry's, BB, Paul's TV, Buy, Costco etc to offer a good deal

refer to my post on the previous page (page 4) in response to another person's question...i've talked about the difference between the two...aesthetics is one other thing you might wanna add apart from what i've listed there

Hows the P50ST50 vs the LG 47LM7600 (LED). I don't much mind the lack of passive 3D on the Panny, but in terms of color quality? Built in wifi on the LG was a joke (so much lag), so I'm not holding my breath for the Panny (not that it would matter as the PS3 would suffice). The 7600 is the third highest model for LED that LG makes (after the 9 and 8 series), but I don't know how it would stack up to a Plasma for TV and movie watching in a window'd living room.

Cnet reviews:
LG [cnet.com]
ST50 [cnet.com]

ST50 will win in color quality, especially blacks. It also does get pretty bright for warm colors and makes them "pop" on the screen, which isn't very common in plasma panels.

If your living room is super bright, I'd go for the LG. Otherwise ST50 all the way.

I did get to see the UT50 and ST50 side by side in the store, and the special panel they use for cutting out the glare on the ST50 really does work wonders.

Thanks. I do have a bright living. I have two windows and definitely do see glare on on the LG. I was watching the amazon product video for the Panny and they made it seem like there is some sort of filter or the like which is anti-glare. Not sure how legit that is (in a real life situation than in the store).

Cross Best Buy off the list, though this shouldn't come as a big surprise.
